    She advised girls to believe in their own talent and take risks as they choose a career path.

    "Take a chance on your own talent and your ambition because if you don't do that, there's no one else who will," she said.

    Hudson spoke at the ANNpower Leadership Forum, a week-long program that unites teens from across the country with women leaders in business, entertainment and nonprofit groups.

    The "Almost Famous" star and Ann Taylor spokeswoman is a member of the advisory council that mentors the teen girls and recommends grants for community projects they create in their neighborhoods, from a healthy eating program to a clothing collection drive.

    Joining the actress were Ann Inc. CEO Kay Krill and Washington non-profit Vital Voices Global Partnership CEO Alyse Nelson, who all answered questions from the young ladies about work-life balance, workplace camaraderie and fashion.

    The annual forum is a part of ANNpower Vital Voices Initiative by the nonprofit and Ann Inc., owner of Ann Taylor and Loft.
